Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew envisioned the Southeast Asian city-state as The City in a Garden. The current government remained faithful to this dream and added the following green spots that make Singapore the city that has it all.

Singapore has been crowned as the top Asian country and the 14th in the world for its Environmental Health and Ecosystem Vitality, according to a study conducted by Yale University and the United Nations. The highly urbanized city-state managed to turn its skyscrapers and architectural marvels into perfect spots for green covers and eco-friendly initiatives. As the world celebrated the International Mother Earth Day on Saturday, Singapore showcased how it remained committed to its pro-environment vision.

A visit to Singapore won't be complete without The Gardens by the Bay. Located in the heart of the city, this tourist attraction is also a national garden that makes nature accessible for urban dwellers. More than just a façade, the garden is designed based on the principles of environmental sustainability.

Singapore also turned The Marina Barrage, its 15th reservoir, as a tourist destination that showcases its eco-friendly initiatives. The dam doesn't just supply water, control flood or hold venues for recreational activities. Its green-roofed Solar Park also provides a vast green covering and over 400 solar panels that pump electricity at the barrage.

The Henderson Waves, the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, captures the city-state's vision of socially responsible and sustainable living. Its stunning architectural structure serves as an ideal spot to observe the tropical flora and fauna found in the Southern Ridges. According to LifestyleAsia, Singapore also showcases at least five eco-friendly buildings such as the CapitaGreen, Tree House condominium, NTU School of Art, Design and Media, Oasia Hotel and Eco Sanctuary condominium.

Pulau Ubin, a village on the northeast island of Singapore, offers a bucolic charm replete with a rich ecosystem that includes rare birds and a marine wildlife. If you don't want to get that far, there's always Singapore Botanic Gardens. The centuries-old garden, also the city's first UNESCO Heritage site, makes Singapore truly a City in a garden.
